anchor solutions for floating structures, lazy station keeping, dynamic station keeping, unsuitable anchor ideas....

The oil industry is anchoring structures of hundreds of thousands of tons in waterdepth down to 2000m - above are the used solutions...

The cost of the anchor is about 15% of the platform.

A seastead with its less stringent positioning requrements should be fine with spending 7% or much less of the project budget on the anchor.

So the whole idea to "design a project around the anchor solution" is not really a good idea. Anchoring in mid ocean is a "minor cost factor" compared to the cost factor to create the floating platform itself.

The Prelude project ( http://concretesubmarine.activeboard.com/t58944443/prelude-ocean-based-lng-plant/ ) also suggests that anchoring even in conditions of a cyclon category 5 is very feasible with todays anchor technology.

So all the exotic discussion about things like "lazy station keeping" of floating cities, anchoring on a seamount location, etc.ect. are based on "asumption that anchoring in mid ocean is a "mayor challange and unknow frontier" that needs to be solved with innovative ideas  - checking the marine business reality it turns out - it is not.

So i suggest we should stop to discuss about "lazy station keeping" for floating cities, to avoid to shu away investors who want concepts on a "realistic base" we should read up the basics and just come to the conclusion that a seastead will be anchored like anything else in the marine industry with tension anchors and torret mooring. There is not much to discuss about - the discussion is over since the problem was solved to everybodies satisfaction in the seventies.

Exposing the economy of a floating city to a uncertain location is not a good idea.

Floating cities will work like Venice ( Historical example Venice: http://concretesubmarine.activeboard.com/t56710025/venice-italy-how-to-do-instructions-for-seasteading-from-his/ ) which is strongly locked into the grid of marine trade - and far from being far out and disconnected, it works like a marine hub. Wandering over the oceans like the "Flying Dutchman" will not go well with that function.

So destroying the economic potential to save on anchor cable which is a minor cost factor is not a smart approach.
